  • Can we eat animal brains?

    Best answer: Yes. You can buy brain at any butcher shop or meat counter. What leads to kuru is cannibalism, the fact that you're eating human proteins such that your body can't discern between those proteins and the proteins that make up your own tissue, resulting in those proteins bonding with your own proteins... show more
    Best answer: Yes. You can buy brain at any butcher shop or meat counter. What leads to kuru is cannibalism, the fact that you're eating human proteins such that your body can't discern between those proteins and the proteins that make up your own tissue, resulting in those proteins bonding with your own proteins throughout your body, including in your brain, when if they weren't human proteins, they never would. It's not eating brains that leads to kuru; it's eating human flesh and introducing human protein to your diet.

    My mom left the doors to our house open for way too long recently and a couple flies got in and somehow found their way across the house into my room. Every single day for like a week or two I’ve managed to kill 7-11 flies and be convinced I’m done with them and then as soon as I get off work the next day there’s more. I am at my wits end and feel like I’m living in filth even though I am not and the persistent buzzing gets on every last nerve. These little sh*ts hardly ever land and I don’t have the time nor the energy to go on fly hunts every day.

Cats take more than a year to become fully grown, but they can become sexually mature at 5 months before they are fully grown. My 10 or 11 year old neutered female cat is now as old as I am or older (66). We've been together 5 and half years. That's more than 35 human years. So far she shows no indications of having arthritis. Why is there medication for arthritic dogs but NOT arthritic cats? My neighbors 3 elderly cats all have allergies. One of them is 17 years old and is diabetic.

    I have a problem with bees (maybe hornets I don’t know). After a long day at work I found one bee/hornet making a nest on my curtains. The nest itself was small (the bee has just started to make it so it was about 5mm size. After the bee flew out I removed the nest and threw it away. Problem solved right? Wrong. The bee came back. Every time I opened the window it went to the same spot and stayed there for a while.. then it left and I closed the window. It has been like this for three days and since it’s 25 degrees celcius the room gets awfully hot and stuffy without opening the window.. so my question is - how can I get rid of the bee?

  • Are solitary animals psychopathic?

    Best answer: Most animals in nature are solitary because there is simply no reason to be social.

    Best answer: Most animals in nature are solitary because there is simply no reason to be social. Many of them get together to mate (if they reproduce sexually), and clonal species do not even need to mate so they don't even need to find other members of the same species. Some of them simply release sperms and eggs into the open water, so they do not need to meet either. Besides those species are usually sessile (meaning they are attached to some surface, such as rocks), so they cannot even move.

    There are reasons some animals become social or gregarious. Gregarious species are not truly social as they merely stay close to other individuals of the same species without forming bonds or even act nicely to each other. For example, many birds (such as penguins and sea gulls) may nest together but they do not interact with one another, other than pecking at strangers who get too close when they pass by. Many fish form schools, and many birds flock together because they find safety in numbers.

    If not being social or gregarious is psychopathic, than a vast majority of animals are psychopaths. Even so, if being solitary actually has no negative effect on survival or reproduction, then it is not deleterious, or bad. The small percentage of species that are social find that it enhances survival and reproduction. For example, humans are kind of weak and we do not stand a chance against predators when we are alone. Therefore it makes sense for humans and our ancestors to form social groups because that was the only way to survive. Even today, humans cannot function as solitary animals. We need family members to help raise us. Orphans cannot survive on their own without adults adopting them and caring for them. Because humans are obligatory social animals, we do need to live in close proximity to other humans and form bonds with family members or with other individuals who may have no relationship with us, just to survive. Indeed, if an individual is hostile to all other humans, and act violently to all other people, then in fact they may be psychopathic.
